How You Can Help

We need your help to ensure our organization continues to provide critical emotional and practical support services to NICU families in need, both here in Anne Arundel County, Maryland and soon, regionally and nationally! Here are some ways you can get involved:

We need in-kind donations for our comfort bags, including hand lotion, lip balm, tissues, bottled water, prayer cards, and other useful hospital "survival" items; helpful support services like discount coupons to local restaurants, free pet-sitting services, pre-paid phone cards, etc.; and fun stuff like books, magazines, puzzles, etc.

We need monetary donations to print our NICU Survival Guide handbooks; to create our custom Isabel’s Gift tote bags, notebooks and pens; and to expand our program to other hospitals regionally and nationally.

Want to show your support for Isabel’s Gift? Now your corporation, civic/community group, church or school can host your very own Isabel’s Gift comfort bag drive! We’ll provide you empty Isabel’s Gift tote bags and a list of suggested items to go inside. You take the bags back to your organization and distribute them to your volunteers for easy “stuffing”. Simply return your filled bags to us and we’ll deliver them to the local NICU in your area. Take 5 bags, take 25, take 50…whatever works best for your organization. It’s an easy, fun way to really make a difference for local NICU families in need!

Donate Pack-n-Play.  New or used to help families at John Hopkin's NICU. Call us for details. 

We need volunteers to stuff our comfort bags; to deliver bags to local hospitals; to help us coordinate our fundraising events, and more.

We’re always looking for more help, more support, and more volunteers! If you’d like more information on what you can do, please call us at 443.562.6303 or 444.510.2673 or email us at
